Don’t Forget These Thanksgiving Favorites if You’re Moving Into a New Home

To inspire your Thanksgiving feast, here are two of our favorite dishes and their recipes.

 

Mashed Potatoes with Bacon

You can never go wrong with mashed potato. Everyone loves them! 

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

3 pounds of peeled and chopped potatoes

  • 4 slices of bacon
  • A cup of salted butter
  • Half a cup of whole buttermilk
  • 8 ounces of softened creme fraîche
  • Half teaspoon of ground white pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of salt

MAKING IT:

  1. Put the potatoes in cold water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once it boils, it should take about 25 minutes until they’re tender.
  2. Drain the potatoes, and put them back on the stove. Cook it for 30 seconds, so it dries out. Make sure to stir them, so they don’t burn.
  3. Get a microwavable glass bowl, and put buttermilk and butter in it. Put the bowl in the microwave for 60 seconds, then take out.
  4. Add the butter and buttermilk mixture and crème fraîche into the potatoes, then season with salt and white pepper.
  5. Mash with a masher until you reach your desired consistency.
  6. Cook the bacon on a skillet until they’re crisp, then crumble the bacon.
  7. Mix in the crispy bacon with the mashed potato. You can also sprinkle some crumbed bacon on top.
